New This Year & Back by Popular Demand:
This year, drum virtuoso Jimmy Chamberlin of the Smashing Pumpkins is performing with platinum selling saxophone powerhouse, Frank Catalano. And jazz favorite, Judy Roberts, is returning for a second year to perform with vocalist Paul Marinaro and Saxophonist Greg Fishman.
Schedule of Performances:
1:30 to 2:30 p.m.: Roger Harris Trio
3 p.m. to 4:15 p.m.: Judy Roberts with vocalist Paul Marinaro and Saxophonist Greg Fishman
4:45 p.m. to 6 p.m.: Stephanie Browning and Golden Mean
6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.: Jimmy Chamberlin and Frank Catalano Group
Now 36 years old, Frank Catalano has been described by Down Beat magazine as “John Coltrane energy for the 21st Century”. Catalano is the only known saxman to have played with Miles Davis, Randy Brecker, Charles Earland, Elvin Jones, Stan Getz, Betty Carter, Von Freeman, Tito Puente, Tony Bennett, Les Claypool (Primus) and Louis Bellson while still in high school! This led to his signing to Delmark Records at age 18 and a string of critically acclaimed recordings. Catalano has been heard by millions of people all over the world thanks in part to 3 Grammy-winning and 11 Grammy-nominated recordings with artists such as Jennifer Lopez, Destiny’s Child, and John Legend. His past 2 solo CD’s for the legendary Savoy/Columbia Label have topped the Billboard sales charts.
For over 15 years, Jimmy Chamberlin was the driving engine behind the super group the Smashing Pumpkins, earning him the respect as one of the most popular and influential drummers in rock music history.
With the Smashing Pumpkins, Chamberlin re-defined the way rock drumming was conceptualized while creating his own signature sound that can be heard on multiple Grammy and American Music award winning recordings. Jimmy has been seen on multiple MTV Music Video Awards and the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine. Chamberlin also collaborated with Billy Corgan on his solo recordings and with the band Zwan. Chamberlin enjoys performing with his solo project called the Jimmy Chamberlin Complex.
Both Jimmy Chamberlin and Frank Catalano pull from their past influences and experiences to create a sound that can best be described as a high energy jazz /rock with elements of soul and ambient undertones. Performing original compositions, experimental music, with a few classics in the mix, the Catalano/ Chamberlin band forges new sounds while drawing from the past.
